Burnout is no joke...and when you tack on Happiness Burnout and then Holiday Happiness Burnout to it...it can be potentially derailing. Human beings tend to have a breaking point when we are not in the most optimal state of existence.

Despite not knowing that, however, there are simple ways to get it handled so that it doesn't ruin our holiday season...that's what today's episode is all about!

There is an utterance that most adults (and even children) have made in life. When there has been a long day, week, month, or even years...and then we're finally tasked or have been given the opportunity to do something for ourselves to be Happier, we utter, "I'm Too Tired right now..."For Happiness?? And we've all done it. So if you have, you're not alone. This episode dives into understanding what that's really all about so that moving forward, should it be uttered again, we can choose a different end result to what comes next after that thought.

And this time, as with many episodes, it was inspire by conversations that have been showing up in my life work and personal life.

We've all heard of the proverbial "cheat" day that many of us have employed at one point or another in our lives. Anyone who has committed to making big changes to their lives will have at least considered having a dedicated day of personal debauchery to give themselves a break from the effort put towards greater change in lifestyle and Happiness. But what happens when those "cheat" days become an integrated routine in our lives? What does that mean and does that contribute to our Happiness by keeping those days around? That's what we get to explore in this episode. Enjoy! 😎

There's a LOT going on in the world right now...but then again...depending on how you choose to live your life, there might always be a LOT going on. That lends to what we explore in this episode which is about what we are all "doing" to either bring us closer to Happiness or closer to UnHappiness. Either way, the choice ultimately lies within each of us...even when it comes to how we respond to the world around us. It's an episode relevant to current events and at the same time it's timeless from a Humanity perspective. It'd be interesting to know your take on this subject...either way...Enjoy! 😎

You may notice that I don't just refer to Happiness and UnHappiness as these general terms of describing our goals around achieve Happiness in life. I am, more often than not, referring to the States of Happiness or UnHappiness so as to make sure we all remember that it's unique to everyone. How we construct those states together in a chain reaction is what ultimately leads to the experience of Happiness OR UnHappiness. Let's dive deep to identify some of these states in this episode. Bring your notebook! 🤓

Money and Happiness have consistently been one of the most challenging things to harmonize in modern day society. When Capitalism became the forefront of common culture, money, for the most of humanity has been a ubiquitous component of our existence. What's interesting is that Money, like everything else in this world, is energy based and as such has the ability to flex and twist with the other energies it comes into contact with...including yours. When you're Happy or UnHappy, it actually influences certain aspects of your Money flow. Let's dive into this episode to explore how to best utilize that relationship of Money and Happiness! Enjoy!

It's inevitable....that we'll develop fears as we evolve and grow...and what's interesting is that as long as we keep evolving, we can evolve AWAY from the Fears. States of UnHappiness are the things that humans develop the most Fears around because, let's face it, not all States of UnHappiness are just mere annoyances...a lot of them can be pretty darn devastating. The create greater States of Happiness, however, is about eliminating those Fears. Does it mean we'll stop experiencing UnHappiness? no...but without those Fears, we'll experience LESS of it. How?

There's been a prevalent desire and want these days due to what has transpired over the past year and it's that discussion around how to be Happy again. Was it ever lost? Or was it eclipsed by the overwhelming reasons to be UnHappy? I ask it this way to help inspire all of us to be empowered on how we can be Happy again. If you read this, then you'll enjoy this episode. If you didn't, then this description doesn't matter anyway. 😅If you want to check out the YouTube video I referenced in this episode of the same title: https://youtu.be/a_j4a8wO0v8Enjoy!

The gyms are open! At least where we are, they finally are. And am I talking about the Happiness Gym where you can work on your Happiness Muscle? Well no, that's been open the WHOLE TIME. It's just that most of us don't realize that it's just as important as a health and fitness gym. This episode dives into a little bit of Wei's World around the metaphors of the gym, working out, and why it's just as important to not only do that for you body, but for your Happiness as well. Most of us are so out of practice on daily Happiness practices that it requires a regimented approach to get back into the flow. Check in and check it out! 😎

This episode is a follow up to the previous to address the subjectivity vs objectivity of Truth. Embracing both is crucial in understanding the unique code we each have for our Happiness. It is the uniqueness of that subjectivity in our truths that hold the key to evolving our states of Happiness. If you went down the rabbit hole of truth in the last episode, then this will be a nice tie off to fill in any potential blanks that may come from the pursuit of deeper personal truth to self. Enjoy the deep dive and don't forget to come up for air when you're done! Enjoy!

In the movie "A Few Good Men", there was a famous scene where Jack Nicholson attempts to admonish the young lawyer played by Tom Cruise by challenging his ability to handle the truth. That inability to handle the truth is more real than one would expect from a Hollywood film. This episode explores one of the key requirements to hitting greater levels and states of Happiness in this journey we're on. But it's more than just "telling" the truth...dive into this one to learn about what truth is really required for Happiness. Enjoy!

It had occurred to me that I didn't even responsibly discuss why it's important to celebrate in the last episode. So I took this opportunity for us to dive a little deeper into why as why to begin with. Understand "why" about the self and the world around us is a huge component in facilitating our ability to create long term and sustainable Happiness in our lives. So we dovetail off of Kayla's previous teaching to make sure we complete the entire celebration package of Happiness. Not even sure if that makes sense...😅. Enjoy!

At this point we can call my silent co-host Obi Wan KaylaNobi because today we have yet another lesson from her. And she barely tries, yet delivers profound teachings simply from her existence. I'm just a translator. This episode is about something many of us do to cut our Happiness experience short...or even sabotage it. Celebration is so important for so many reasons...and when we moderate it out of this learned fear, it eventually leads to greater frequency of UnHappiness. And that's the opposite point of this whole podcast right? Dive into this teachings of Obi Wan KaylaNobi for this episode and be prepared to shift to a greater paradigm of Happiness Existence. 😉

How many times have you said "YES" when you really meant "NO"? We've all done it...for one reason or another, we'll all probably keep doing throughout our journey to greater states of Happiness. The goal, of course, to do less and less of it over time as this behavior pattern creates a build up of Incongruence within ourselves which DOES NOT contribute to greater states of Happiness. This episode dives rather deep into exploring how we can start getting into deeper alignment with ourselves and our choices which will then, of course, lead us to greater states of Happiness. Enjoy! 😎

Purpose and Happiness...what a quandary sometimes...depending on the culture or society that you grew up, most of us are often pushed to choose one over the other. If you are of that choice of perception and belief, then this is an episode that you don't want to miss. The twist is that to truly maximize your Purpose...AND your Happiness... the two have to be aligned. Enjoy! 🤓

In the 90s a playwright by the name of Josefina Lopez wrote a play called "Real Women Have Curves" which later on was adapted to a movie of the same name in 2002. The trailer for that movie showcased the empowering of women into embracing the beauty of their natural bodies, no matter what size or shape. Interestingly enough, that was only a small part of the story despite the name of the play and movie. That being said, the message of the perfectly imperfect world live in is what was conveyed and this episode takes a cue and spin off that production with a bit of wordplay to talk about how we handle the curves in life as we journey towards our unique states of Happiness. Enjoy! 😊

In the quest for new worlds in the form of new land, many explorers found themselves lost with only hope to cling onto. How they clung on to hope was in the form of feedback or evidence that they were going in the right direction. Those seeking land would look for land based clues and if found, gave them hope that they were going in the right direction. Our journey towards Happiness and greater states of Happiness is no different. If endeavored for too long without feedback or evidence that what we're doing is getting us there, it can lead to burn out and ultimately increased states of UnHappiness. This episode explores how we can make sure to consistently stay on the right path and what evidence to watch out for so that we can keep progressing in our journey towards the creating the Happiness Lifestyle we each uniquely want and deserve. Enjoy! 😉

Sometimes getting caught with "working hard" to create more Happiness in our lives can have us sitting back at some point wondering..."Why is it so hard?? Is there ANY way I can just sit back and ATTRACT Happiness so that it just comes?" And my answer to that is...YES...you can! That's what this episode discusses which, of course, true to my engineer mind, includes a light scientific discussion as to how that works and how it can be. Will you start Attracting Happiness moving forward? Let's see how you do with what you get from this episode! Enjoy! 😉

I'm always talking about how every one of us has a unique code of Happiness. Another way to explore that concept is to recognize that everyone has a unique Reality of Happiness.

If one masters these concepts, a Happier Lifestyle is inevitable. Enjoy!

What I love about the work I do is that my clients inspire me on a daily basis. In our work to define or redefine what Happiness uniquely means to every human, revelations often present themselves in the "laboratory" of my office...where I get to be an observer of myself and my clients as exciting evolutions happen. This episode was inspired by just such an occasion this past week where one of my clients was sharing how he's experiencing more Happiness in what most people would consider an uncertain transition in life. Tune into the episode to learn all about it!

My poor silent co-host furbaby, Kayla, got surgery this week...and even in her state of pain during the healing process, she was still generously teaching us mere mortal humans amazing lessons around Happiness. It almost goes without saying that as long as we're alive, we're going to experience pain on some level in life...life interrupted...Happiness interrupted. What do we do then? Well, the wisdom of Kayla is what answers that question in this episode...Enjoy! 🐺

Are there Lions, Tigers, and Bears that are threats to your Happiness? You bet there is! The nice thing about it though is that we are the ones responsible for keeping them alive in our life.

It is a powerful way to resolve what has been keeping much of humanity stuck in states of UnHappiness for too long. Check it out and apply the principals!

Taking things personally is one of the biggest hurdles to up-leveling your Happiness. Usually when we take things personally due to another person or a circumstance it's done to increase our states of UnHappiness. If you want to stop taking things personally, take a page (or chapter) out of The 4 Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz as the inspiration for this episode and hopefully you! Enjoy!

Beach Volleyball inspired this episode today...specifically my painful experience of it. And though Beach Vball is a very Happy place for me, I still do encounter pain on a variety of levels from it.

The other day I was confronted by an acquaintance...well not really confronted...more like questioned...about whether or not I thought my journey and prioritization of achieving greater states of Happiness for myself and my clients was a selfish endeavor.

Opportunities to expedite our journey towards greater states of Happiness is often missed because we don't think that every choice we make in life actually is about Happiness. The fact is...EVERY choice we make down any path in life has an eventuality of Happiness. It's a question of time and how quickly those choices we make can get us to a state of Happiness. This episode clarifies and frees you from the onus of making "bad" decisions in life.

As human beings, we all procrastinate at some point. A unique challenge arises when we start procrastinating on Happiness, or rather doing things that contribute to our States of Happiness.

In recent years, the musical a cappella group, Pentatonix, has contributed to a lot of Happy times in my life (as background music and foreground music...lol) and one of my favorite songs is "That's Christmas To Me". This Pentatonix song is what inspired this episode to challenge each and every single one of us to take another look at how we are choosing to make and allow this Holiday Season to inspire greater states of Happiness as many traditions are being challenged due to 2020. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and all those you love and care about...and enjoy this episode!And if you'd like to watch the very touching and heart-warming video I reference in this episode, here it is! https://youtu.be/pFjdfjrtf1Q

Tryptophan has been contributed to a lot of reasons behind lethargy and fatigue during the holiday season due to the belief that eating high amounts of turkey (and other foods) will contribute to the sometimes dreaded "food coma"...But is it really all that bad or is it your body telling you something about your States of Happiness? What if Tryptophan is really an ELIXIR for exactly what your body NEEDS to shift you into greater states of Happiness? This episode is all about that....Enjoy!

We have another lesson from the ever-so-unawaringly-wise Kayla. Often, our challenges around achieving greater states of Happiness is due to the fact that many of us believe that if we were to impose our desires and wants to the world around us, it would cause more problems than it's worth. There is a some truth to that...that is...if we approach like a human being would. If we approach like Kayla does it, it actually opens up the door for a whole host of new possibilities on how we achieve more Happiness
